Re: Global Warming

What's scary for me is the number of otherwise intelligent and successful people I know who still fervently believe it's all a hoax and renewable energy will never amount to anything. The number isn't many, really. Maybe 4 or 5. Fortunately most of my friends and acquaintances are more enlightened. ...

I must say Trev I was usually looking elsewhere when big easterly swells were rolling into that neck of the woods. So, missed seeing it ever break.
Out of control everywhere and northerly winds.

Just that little beach inside the Breakwall on the Southside.
On big easterly swells you would get waves down pretty much opposite the RSL.
Big sandbar in the middle of the river.

Re: Midlengths

Groups of kids get taken out there for lessons every time a hint of a ripple hits the bank. I think you'll be ok out there. An old school mate used to surf there when he parents took him down there. Always looked like a fun novelty wave. I've surfed inside the Tweed up from Fingal a few times. Near...

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Dodged a bullet this time Cranked. Minimal effects, minor debris clean up. I think where Trev is/was in Canada visiting his daughter, is getting hit now. Yeah. We got out of NS just in time. Serious issues there today with massive power outages, flooding and a collapsed crane. It's my son, offy. My...

Any head dips?
Mine shrinks into oblivion compared to that beauty of Steve's, completely upside down. Now that was a head dip for the ages.

Yet another wave pool.

Maybe GStQ has already told us about this but if so I missed it.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

What's your tips for the weather in Canada in about three weeks time, Trev? :-o Meh! In 3 weeks we'll almost be ready to head home. In fact we will be home. The days here are balmy, mid 20's and around 15 overnight. Spent the afternoon at this massive park along the edge of Lake Ontario. Labour Day...

Back in my day, a six foot wave stayed a six foot wave until the bitter end. That's when waves had gumption and resilience. These soft-cock millennial waves break at six foot and immediately start diminishing until they're all frightened and small by the time they get to the sand.

Re: Where did you surf today ?

Okaaay! I started surfing (on boards) in 1962. In 1970 I stopped and got into motor sport. In those 8 years I surfed mostly from Snapper to Currumbin Alley. With a few visits south as far as Port Hacking. As it says in my sig. Six feet was six feet. At the takeoff point. Irrelevant how small it got ...

people die in sporting events all the time.
professionals.
Yes they do but "duty of care" comes into it these days.
Look at the HIA rule in NRL.
And ongoing upgrades of safety features in F1 and all levels of motor sport.

G'day Trev, yeah I gathered that from some of your earlier posts. You're out west and up in Canada?
Looks like a dangerous hurricane is heading to Florida, glad I've already got the boat delivered down there.
Yeah. Mississauga (Toronto), and a few days in Halifax next week.
